Fujifilm Fujinon XF 60mm f/2.4 R Macro Lens review (tested with a Fujifilm X-pro1) at Photo Review: Superior performance and robust build quality, but not a true 1:1 Macro.

"Of the three lenses supplied with the Fujifilm X-Pro 1, the 60mm lens produced the least deviations between centre and edge resolution in our Imatest tests. This flatness of field was maintained throughout the aperture range of the lens, which spanned fro, f/2.4 to f/22 (the smallest aperture setting for the trio).

Peak resolution was obtained at f/8, with a steady upward climb from f/2.4. Diffraction began to have an obvious effect on resolution at f/16, although resolution remained acceptably high at f/22. This is handy when you need extra depth-of-field for close-up shots. The graph below shows the results of our Imatest tests.

Lateral chromatic aberration was extremely low throughout the lens's aperture range. In the graph below, which shows the results of our Imatest tests, the red line marks the boundary between negligible and low CA.

Slight vignetting (corner darkening) could be seen at f/2.4 but it had vanished by f/4. Rectilinear distortion was close to negligible, with a trace of pincushioning visible under close inspection.

Autofocusing was fast and accurate for well-lit subjects at least 50 cm from the camera. However, in our close-up tests, hunting was very common and many shots taken at around 30 cm from the subject  were out-of-focus. (The camera lacks a shutter lock and doesn't appear to sense  when focus is slightly out.)

When focused correctly, shots were nicely sharp. Bokeh at wide apertures was as pleasing as you'd expect from a fast, short-telephoto prime lens.

The large lens hood provided excellent shielding against stray light for backlit shots. Flare and ghosting were seldom encountered when it was in place.

Buy this lens if:
- It's offered with the Fujifilm X-Pro 1.
- You require superior performance and robust build quality.
- You want a lens with excellent flatness of field.
- You like shooting with filters.

Don’t buy this lens if:
  - You need true macro capabilities.
  - You require fast and accurate focusing for close-ups."
